A Letter to My Future Husband

Dear Future Husband,

Oh my goodness… I am so excited to marry you. I so look forward to spending as much time with you as I can, but I know that we will have an eternal life together in Heaven. I am so head-over-heels in love with you already and I don’t even know who you are. I hope you know that I am faithfully praying for you every day of my life. I pray that you are a God fearing man with a patient and kind soul and a heart set on things above. “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” Colossians 3:1

I know that God is preparing you for me in the same way He is preparing me for you and let me tell you, He is working some wonders on my heart and I cannot wait to fall in love with the man that He has made you. I cannot wait to be silly with you and sing our favorite songs as loud as we can in the car on the way to the grocery store. I cannot wait to study the bible with you and talk about God until its 2 am and both of our hearts are overflowing with love for our Heavenly Father. I look forward to worshiping with you and watching our faith grow. I look forward to the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, the difficult times and the best of times, and I look forward to this because these will be times I will have spent with you.

I pray that you know that there is no relationship without a relationship with God first. I tris
pray that you know that the closer we are to God, the closer we are a couple. (I also hope you love this rough drawing I did on my computer to illustrate my thoughts… haha) I pray that our relationship brings the both of us closer to God. I know that because you are a man of God, that you will respect me. You will lead me closer to God and not try to control or pressure me. You will know that I was made for you by our Creator and that you will pray for me and pray with me.

I have no earthly idea when we will both be ready for this beautiful next chapter of each of our lives, but I have no doubts that God is preparing both of us for this love that neither of us would have ever expected. I love you, I love you, I love you. I am so excited for the day we are finally together, for that day will begin the rest of our lives. I want as much time with you as possible, but keep reminding myself not to rush God. His perfect timing will be soon enough. I’m always praying for you. I love you.

Love,

Your Future Wife

 

Seek your happiness in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desire. Psalm 37:4

ruby-transpShe is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Proverbs 3:15

When we are little girls, we dream of “Prince Charming” and we look and look for him, and somehow along the way, our expectations for this man decreases until we have little to no expectations at all. Tonight I pray that we, as young women, do not forget that Prince Charming we had always dreamed of. It is amazing to know that God has a man out there for us, and that that man is out there, living his life and waiting for us just as we are waiting for him! This man was created especially for us and this man will respect and love us more than we can even imagine! I cannot wait for that man to join me in my journey. I have prayed for the man God has intended for me everyday since I was a little girl and I know that every passing day is a day closer to getting to spend my life with him! We cannot get used to the way some boys treat women in our world and confuse boys asking for pictures and rating us high out of a scale from 1-10 for love. That is a crooked way of thinking. God has our Prince Charming here! You must always remember to be patient with God’s timing! God is preparing your heart and your Prince Charming’s heart right now for your fairy tale romance and it will begin as soon as you both are ready!I pray that young women all over know that they are worth more than what boys think of them. We should be waiting for a man of God, not a boy of the week. Jesus died on the cross so that we could know how priceless we are. He died on the cross to show us that we are worth more than the names boys call us, the ratings they give us. He died to tell us that we are beautiful and worthy of love! “You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” Song of Solomon 4:7 Let us, as young women, refuse to believe the rude things that boys call us or say about us and not to forget to believe that Jesus died for us! He died so that we could live and love and know that our Father has a plan for our lives! “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:24

I also pray that we do not lose that belief in love because of damage that a past relationship has done to our hearts. I believe in love because I believe in GOD! “We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 We cannot allow ourselves to harbor hatred in our hearts and not allow ourselves to love fully again. Bad people and bad situations are put in our lives to teach us lessons so that we can learn from them, not to ruin our lives!! “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” Romans 8:18 In Jeremiah 29:11, God tells us that He has a plan for us, plans to give us a hope and a future and we must never forget that! We must always trust God’s plans for us and remember that we do not always know what is best for us!!!! For in John 13:7, Jesus says “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

 

Do not forget to seek your Prince Charming.

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Romans 8:25

After thinking more on last night’s post, I realized I had a lot more to say pertaining to the same idea. So here is my expansion on last night’s thoughts.

I touched on waiting for the right person that God has made for us, but, ladies, how do we know if this man is the one that our Lord has set out for us or just some guy?

  1. He will make it known that he has taken an interest in pursuing you. You should never wonder how he feels about you.
  2. He will call you first. You should not have to chase him.
  3. He will be straight-forward. He will not say “lets hang out” and definitely will not text you “wyd” at 11:30 at night. He will ask you on a date and he will call it a date.
  4. He will not shy away from talking about God. He will encourage even more Godly conversations.
  5. He knows that he is not a perfect Christian, but that he is a sinner saved by grace.
  6. He will respect your body and will not convince or make an attempt to convince you to sin.

Obviously, the man that God has intended for me is not a part of my life yet, but I firmly believe that when I begin a relationship with this man, I will know. This man will respect my boundaries and have his own, he will pray for me like I will pray for him (and have been praying for him), he will encourage building our faith together as our relationship grows, and more.

I am a believer that if you pray for it, God is working on it! I have been praying since I was 13 for a Godly husband in my future and praying that God prepares my heart and my soul for this man when the time comes. This may seem crazy, but I do have a feeling that that time is coming soon and I look so forward to it!

Remember: GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

And so it was that she, having waited long and endured patiently, realized and obtained what God had promised. Hebrews 6:15

One big topic heavy on my heart is that of romance. I have been stuck in the metaphorical waiting room for love for quite some time now, but I honestly believe that that was what was best for me. Through this waiting, God has taught me more about myself than I ever thought possible. This time alone has made me a better friend, daughter, big sister, and over-all person. I often found myself complaining and whining about being single but I now realize that I would not be the person that I am today and that I love so much if I had not been waiting.

I have no doubt that God has a beautiful marriage in His plans for me and I so look forward to the day that I will finally begin that part of His plans. I am amazed at the fact that the man of my dreams is wandering around this same planet and that neither of us have any idea who the other is. God, I am so excited for the future You have planned for me!

Because I was single throughout my high school years, I never had to deal with the petty teenage boyfriend drama – which I now know is a huge blessing in itself. If you are in high school without a significant other, please do not feel left out or embarrassed. You are not alone, no matter how alone you may feel, and you will appreciate this time to get to know yourself first.

Again, God has a plan for all of His children and He has not failed me yet. All I can do now is pray for and wait for God to bring me to the rest of my life.

& to my future husband – I am always praying for you. I love you.

A Letter to My Future Husband

Dear Future Husband,

I have no earthly idea who you are. Maybe I know you already or maybe I’ll meet you soon, but I want you to know that I am so in love with you already. I am already in love with you because I know that God made you especially for me to love and me for you. Among many things, I also want you to know that I pray for you everyday. Firstly, I pray that we find each other soon because I want as much time with you as possible (even though I know you will come in God’s perfect timing). Secondly, I pray that you are enjoying your life as I am enjoying mine. I pray that you know and always make time for the Lord and also that you trust in Him with every ounce of your body. I pray that you do, and always will, love God more than anything else. I pray that together, we will always continue to build our relationship with the Lord. I pray that I will find my soulmate in you and you in me. I pray that you love me forever and without conditions, because that is exactly how I will love you. I pray that you want to be father as much as I so badly want to be a mother. I pray that we will teach our children about God’s unconditional love, and be an example of a healthy relationship for our children to always look up to. Above all, I pray that you are well and happy. God knows how excited I am to meet you and how much I look forward to loving you for the rest of my life.

Love,

Your Future Wife

Waiting – God’s Perfect Timing vs. Making a Move

Patience –the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.

Ah patience. A quality we all hope to possess, however very few of us actually do. One patience-related conflict I find myself seemingly always at battle with is: Should I remain faithful that God has a plan or should I grab life by the horns and take an initiative and go after whatever it is I want. Usually, however, the thing I am “wanting” is, sadly, a boy.

One of my favorite bible verses, Jeremiah 29:11, states “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” With reading this verse, I am filled with contentment, but I am so stupid lonely. What I’m saying is, I would absolutely love to have a boyfriend, and this feeling does not, in any way, make me feel as if God is cheating me, but it does, however, bring me to feel as if I’m missing out on some “normal” teenage things. I keep my faith that God will eventually bring the right man into my life at the right time, but until then, I remain incurably impatient. 

I want so badly to simply trust in God and be patient, but then I find myself thinking, “Well, look where that has gotten me,” which I really do hate to admit. But in the past, when I took initiative in the boys that I was interested in, I only ended up hurt. I should also mention that I am not usually a risk taker, the uncertain makes me nervous. So I stick with what I know for sure.

I know that God’s love is enduring and everlasting. I know He has my best interest in mind and I keep faith that He will bring me the one my soul loves when He knows the time is right. I struggle very often with the thought that now is the right time, without reminding myself that I do not really know when the best time is, because I haven’t lived that time yet. I get so caught up that I actually think that I know what is best for me and forget that God has it all planned out for me, all I need to do is wait. 

Some people go after what they want and are comfortable doing that, God has given them that confidence. Some people, like me, are more comfortable with allowing God to guide them through life’s river. It is beautiful when people can do either one of these things. For the latter, however, you must learn patience.


Sincerely,

Jada
